Thought I might as well start this one :D

I don't know my types but this butterfly seems quite common.

This following one is much smaller. Is it a butterfly or a perhaps a moth?

The first insect is a butterfly called Small Tortoiseshell. In German it would be a "Small Fox", btw. That's the only butterfly I know. ;-)

Great start popo!
I was really waiting for someone to start the definitive butterfly thread.
I linked it from the sticky thread and will certainly contribute to it.

No, I didn't go back to the butterfly farm. These are in the wild.

The last one was another "almost" shot. The moment after this shot, the butterfly closed its wings and the hoverfly landed on the top of the butterfly's wings! In the split second it took me to react it flew off again...

Image
This is 100% lossless crop from camera jpeg.

The motion blur isn't due to me as the rest of the shot was fine.

Look like she's flying backwards :wink: But I assume you have the flash synced to the start of the shutter!?

Ooh, I hadn't thought of that. I just used the body flash normally at the fastest speed the body allows.
